This book is difficult to follow. Finding the errata section on this website helped tremendously. I did learn a great deal about the multi-tier approach and have moved my app over to using MS's Application blocks to replace some of the classes used in ThePhile like exceptions, data access etc. The User accounts classes are good enough to use.

I liked the challenge this book gave me in having to think differently about designing a scalable app. The errors did throw me off badly and some of the sections could have used much more of a detailed explanation.
